Born in East London, Andi studied acting alongside Rasak Adoti (Armistad, Black Hawk Down) and Idris Elba (Pacific Rim, The Wire). She made her stage debut in 2003, appearing at renowned fringe and off-West End venues, playing the lead in Medea and a No. 1 tour of Pulitzer Prize nominated play, Yellowman. Andi has also appeared in a host of popular British TV comedies and dramas.
In 2007 Andi launched a stand up comedy career, winning the coveted Funny Women award. This led to regular TV appearances on a number of popular panel formats and stand up shows (Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo).
Along side this, Andi developed her writing, selling scripts to Fox US, BBC TV and BBC Radio. She has also written for several national UK newspapers. In 2014 she wrote and produced Brit.i.am, a crowd sourced short film about Britishness which went on to win best experimental short at two film festivals, the Audience Award at another and was officially selected for eight more.
In 2013 Andi co-created Breaking Hollywood, a comedic webseries starring David Harewood (Homeland) and Liam Tuohy (Titanic) about naive British actors in LA.
Andi completed a film-making program at The New York Film Academy and in 2015 finished post production on her final project, The Grid, a proof-of-concept piece for a full-length sci fi thriller which has featured in 17 festivals.
Through the intensive NYFA program Andi made six short films and explored further her skills in working with actors to create rounded, three dimensional characters and strong visual storytelling.
Andi’s NYFA training is in addition to a two year production course in London at the prestigious Ravensbourne College of Design.
